Ability First Camp Paivika

AbilityFirst Camp Paivika is a full-service, fully accessible summer camp. Camp promotes self-awareness, self-confidence, health and well-being through a full range of accessible recreational activities, including horseback riding, archery, swimming, arts and crafts, performing arts, nature hikes, cookouts and campfires. All programs are designed so that each camper can participate to the best of his or her ability. These experiences empower campers to interact with others, enhance their social skills and develop a sense of belonging, while enjoying the benefits of exercise and the outdoors. Many campers do not have other opportunities in their daily lives to engage in physical exercise or to spend time in nature.
